Dinner Party

My love for cooking and interior design is closely allied to my love for giving dinner parties. It’s one of the joys of life to invite several couples to join my husband and I for an evening of delicious food and sparkling conversation. Last Saturday night was just such an evening. The preparation starts by setting a stylish table. In this case I’ve strewn the table with fall leaves, mini white pumpkins and white flowers (cyclamens.) The dinner service is Limoges and the wine and water glasses are colored antiques I’ve collected for many years. The menu started with a goat cheese and tomato confit salad, followed by Boeuf Bourguignon, with a wicked chocolate tart for dessert. We sat at table for hours, relishing the food and the fellowship. With all the electronic gadgets that clutter our lives and vie for our leisure time, there’s nothing more enjoyable to me than a night spent around an elegant table with fascinating friends.
